I had to visit someone this morning and snapped a few quick photos while on my way - nothing special but it turns out there is a theme to them.
The photo above shows part of the Trenance Viaduct, Cornwall.
A viaduct was first built here in 1858 but had to be replaced in 1899. It's quite a construction as it has ten piers and is 115 feet (35m) high and 720 feet (220m) long.
The photo below is a small river - made white by china clay deposits - running under the viaduct.
Purely by chance, as I was approaching a footbridge over the railway lines I heard a train. I rushed to the top of the bridge and managed to get a photo - but not the front of the engine! The train was transporting china clay - I seem to have mentioned china clay quite a lot recently - see my post: China Clay Country for example
I quickly went to the other side of the bridge to take another photo as the train thundered through St.Austell station.
The train would have travelled over the Trenance Viaduct I mentioned at the beginning of this post. So, along with china clay, it all fits together nicely - purely by chance. That is, if there is such a thing as chance, coincidence synchronicity etc. But that's a whole different conversation!
